I really am loving the combination of black and brown paint to stain my wood (notice my projects lately, anyone?). It's very easy and you don't really have to deal with the bad fumes that come with real stain. Of course, I do like using stain on occasion, but for small projects, my paint is great. For this project, I modified a normal pine box and added custom framing and trim detail - see how I made it.
